Proud Galleries, London, are holding a fantastic exhibition of Nirvana
photographs by rock photographers Charles Petersen and Ian Tilton. It
is the first time these renowned photographers have collaborated to
bring a unique and personal insight into the career of a band which
changed the music industry landscape forever. The exhibition proves
a fitting legacy from those that knew them best and the ultimate
testament to the power of Cobain who would both inspire and challenge
the Middle America he despised.
The exhibition runs from Thursday, 27th October, until 20th November 2005 at Proud Central, 5 Buckingham Street, London, WC2N 6BP. The gallery opens between 10am-7pm Monday to Thursday and 11am-6pm Friday to Sunday. The prints which will be exhibited are also available for purchase online. You can contact the gallery on 0207 839 4942 or email email@example.com. The gallery's website is www.proud.co.uk.

The Summer 2005 issue of Classic Rock Magazine featured an article
on Soundgarden which includes a comment from bassist Ben Shepherd
where he talks about almost joining Nirvana. You can read it
here. Also included is a different
comment from Ben (from a different piece) where he talks about Kurt Cobain.
Special thanks to Greg Prato for these.
